Key Moment In The Game: In my opinion the key moment was the top of the 5th when the Reds scored 6 runs, aided by some questionable umpiring. The Mets did an excellent job trying to catch up and never quitting but they ended up falling short.
Game Ball: Alex Cora: 2-3 | 2 RBI
Mike Pelfrey: 4.2 IP | 9 H | 7 ER | 1 SO.
David Wright has now hit safely in 8 out of the last 9 games: 2-4.
Jose Reyes sat out his sixth game in a row with a stiff back.
Mets are now 28-13 at home this season.
Before the game it was announced that the Mets placed Fernando Tatis on the 15-Day Disabled List, with a right shoulder AC joint sprain and recalled lefthanded pitcher Raul Valdes.
